Hello again, Ok here’ we go with post #2. Saturdays are usually my days i don’t work, and since i’ve been really sore i took a break from the gym (if you didn’t know before ive lost 42 pounds in 4 months). Normally when i yard sale, i pick out the ones i want to go to, here a a few tips!
1. Vintage, – Usually estate sales, are the best for this because they have either died, or moved on, (sometimes depending on the home, if its elderly people its usually vintage)
2. Clothes- going into knowing what size you are exactly helps. Because usually you cant try it on.
3. Bargain- i usually try to haggle with people if i dont feel like the price is right, but i’ve come across amazing sales with stories behind everything i buy. Hence why i love yardsales!
Daria Dvd- (I LOVE DARIA) $.50 cents.
Miscellaneous Jewelry – think 25 cents for these. (the big belt buckle was 1.00 because i recycle jewelry so i was making this into something else)
Unicorn Book- (its a journal) -25 cents.
Indian Coin Purse- 25 cents
(the dvd, the coin purse and the book i got all of it for 1.00 at one yard sale)
Vintage German Suitcase – $.25 cents – I saw it and had to have it, im a SUCKER for vintage suitcases
Mexico Purse- (this purse actually came from mexico the lady purchased it there but never used it) -$5.00
The Cute Weird Fruit Decorations- They are christmas ornaments but I thought they were funny! So i purchased them from a multi-family sale.

Kitty Umbrella- $.76 cents ( Picked this up from the Disabled American Veterans Thrift Shop was 95 cents *but saturdays it’s 20% off)
Clothes- I got a blue shrug, a puma halter, some bloomers (BRAND NEW), A danskin workout top, some leg warmers – all from one yard sale (including a dress which will be featured on a later blog posting) all for 6.00 (multi-family sale)
These are my finds for Saturday June 2, 2012. – Hope you enjoy looking at them! I hope some of my tips are helpful!
